Pulling hair away from the face is a brave and beautiful thing to do because it exposes all of you –– no place to hide! This version, part up, part down, is a sleek and sophisticated way to vary hairstyle. A fairly high updo like this is more of a nighttime look –– it gives lots of lift and drama, and emphasizes cheekbones, for elegance refined.

Wow! What a wonderful example of creating perfect face-framing shape with a dramatic one-length cut. This type of style elongates features like cheekbones and chin, while vivid, center-part bangs portray a powerful, polished woman. The whitish-ash blonde color tone adds vibrancy, texture, depth, and contrast.

A great option for natural brunettes is to color glaze your locks. This enhances natural highlights and gives a glossy, glistering sheen. The style is made with a loose set, which enables hair to be manipulated into different shapes and styles, waves and curls –– with vixen volume.

This “Donatella-esque” look is high fashion glamorous. If hair is naturally dark, start with a medium blonde base and finish with heavy foiling of platinum highlights; if hair is naturally light, go for all in one step lightener scalp to ends. A long bold one-length cut, styling is easy.
